I was enjoying Orcas so decided to stay another day, but move to the hostel in town, the Golden Tree. Really nice place. I was chatting to the owner, Ian and mentioned I needed to do laundry. He said they don't have a guest laundry but he liked my story so let me use theirs!
I met Riley who was also cycle touring solo around the San Juan area. I mentioned I was heading out to the brew pub and asked if she wanted to join me. Oops! Was totally shocked when she said she wasn't 21 yet! I don't think I'd have been brave enough to head out on my bike on my own at that age. Awesome!
I got sat in the pub and was chatting to some of the regulars, unfortunately I gave no pics as I got steadily drunk on 5 pints of strong beer (6% was the weakest they had!) Had a great time!
Loved the system they had, the walls had racks of locally made pottery steins, each numbered with a name on it. The regulars pay $100 a year for their stein but get $1 off each pint when they use it. Wish I'd got photos!
